"Great piece of software"
A couple caveats before I start the review: 1) I despise Adobe Reader. Any piece of software that takes a year to extract and then installs 100 meg on my hard drive -- just to read PDFs -- has issues. 2) I used to be a big fan of Foxit Reader Sumatra doesn't do the big feature-rich pdfs with sound and all that, but what it does do is allow you to read ordinary, garden-variety pdfs. It's fast, it renders clearer and faster than it's competitors (Foxit Reader, Expert PDF), and it loads and installs faster than Adobe. By way of comparison, load a PDF up in your favorite reader. Load one up in Sumatra, and scroll through both using the arrow keys. Sumatra gives you a fast continuous scrolling experience. The competitors take a second or two to re-render the page before they show you your new position in the document. The only oddity is that if you're going back where you've been it will take a half-second to render the page. Going forwards it's all smooth. My tilt is a "10." It does pretty much everything I need it to do, and does it well.
- Light, fast, open-source
- Does what it sets out to do
- Offers an enjoyable pdf reading experience without everything else getting in the way.
- If you're going for the bells & whistles multimedia experience of PDF, then Sumatra is probably not your cup of tea.
